Was he a bad man?

Can a roman expert explain the civil war to me please?

He was definitely a great man, maybe the greatest(except Caesar of course, blessings be upon him). It's hard to say if he was bad, that comes down to sensibilities, he was certainly pro-senate/patricians

>>594419
He butchered so many people though. Great men don't kill educated aristocrats, do they?
>>
>>594430
Sure they do. Ethics and greatness are not related.

I'm asking if he was a bad man however, I'm having a hard time understanding his motives and actions.

Marius is much simpler to get a bearing around

Not at all.
Most of what marius did was rather commendable but ended on a bad note.
Sulla was always championing the cause of the elite or gaining glory, much simpler than marius, that had spend a lot of time being anti-establishment and then showed hints of being a dictator.
Sulla was just a politician, and from his perspective he was probably a good guy, even when he turned on rome. I would definitely not call him outright bad in the way some dictators were. All that's certain is that he was brilliant
